I'm in the JMB-Ken Damansara III and thankfully, it has been fairly smooth going on the management of the condominium.
I have a question on what I would term as "Tenant control". I have heard that some condos have set in place a policy to discourage owner-investors from renting out their units to certain groups of people. I'm interested to know how this is implemented effectively and within the law.
Is it enough that the JMB calls for an EGM in order that the owner-residents vote on this new rule to be included in the House Rules? What sort of majority vote are we looking at? 51% of owners?
As there is a new shopping mall coming up next door (anchor tenant possibly is GIANT) and Carrefour opening soon at Tropicana Mall nearby, the owner-residents are quite worried that some units in the condo may end-up as workers' hostel.
Presently, we have units which are rented out as hostels to students from nearby colleges and 1 unit as workers' hostel for Carrefour. It's clear that we need to nip this problem in the bud before it gets out of control.
Appreciate advise and comments on this matter.
